comment Historical differences between colors that are i-adjectives and those that are simply nouns
@sawa What I meant was although JMDict says it's a noun, but other sites like japanese.nciku.com and wwwjdic has a no-adj classification. One of the words I checked was "期限切れ".

@sawa So JMDict's classification of "Nouns which may take the genitive case particle の" although accurate(it's not described as an adjective) it's redundant? (Since all nouns I know so far can take の)

Some dictionaries have a classification for "adj-no" though.

"Any noun can modify another noun once no is appended" This is why I don't understand the dictionary's distinction between nouns and no-adjectives.

comment の performing back referral? の used adjectivally?
I'm not sure what exactly I should be asking. Thinking it over I should have asked if the の in question came from elision or if it had something to do with 期限切れ being a の-adj (Just looked it up in other dictionaries, it's labelled as の-adj)
